Photo Gallery > Delivering the White Pearl

“Delivering the White Pearl,” the story of a voyage down the East Coast, will be presented September 24, the latest in the series of ongoing free educational programs offered by the Shipman Mansion Foundation at the Red Dragon Canoe Club in Edgewater Park. David Appleton, a professional yacht delivery captain, will tell of the planning, preparation and actual delivery – one of scores he has accomplished – of the yacht Seapearl in a program starting at 7 p.m. at 221 Edgewater Avenue. Appleton acquired a US Coast Guard 100 ton Master license 23 years ago and has been a professional captain since, completing 30 southbound deliveries and another 25 northbound, assisting boat owners who want to avoid the seasonal “snowbird” migration of yacht owners moving their craft from the cold north to the warm south, and back. He has also served as a sailing instructor and skippered ocean training cruises between the East Coast and Bermuda through his delivery company, Appleton Marine Inc. He has accumulated 95,000 miles at sea during these ventures. The Shipman Mansion Foundation is a charitable non-profit corporation with a mission of restoring the historic Shipman Mansion, which is listed on the state and federal Registers of Historic Places. The Foundation’s programs are designed to educate the public about the history, culture and ecosystems of the Delaware River and its surroundings. Foundation programs are free to the public and include a dessert intermission. All are welcome.
